Normal people don't patrol handicap parking spots and pull guns on people with parking violations. Something major wrong with this guy.
I'm not saying I want Drejka as a neighbor.

I am saying, if we consider prior behavior, we should consider it for both men. Drejka didn't have a criminal record, although there are accusations that didn't result in arrest. McGlockton does have a criminal record, including a drug conviction and an arrest for aggravated battery, and an unknown number of accusations that didn't result in arrest.

I am saying a person knocked to the ground by the first physical attack in a dispute doesn't have a reasonable opportunity to flee a standing aggressor, and "stand your ground" is a misnomer for what happened.

Re: FL:Stand your ground law under fire for parking space dispute murder

If it's fair to consider Drejka's past then it's fair to consider McGlockton's past.
Records show Drejka does not have a criminal history in Florida, although the Sheriff’s Office had prior contact with him in 2012 when a driver accused him of pulling a gun during a road rage incident. Drejka denied he showed the gun, and the accuser declined to press charges.
McGlockton’s history included a drug conviction in 2010 and an arrest for aggravated battery a decade ago, records show, but the charge was dropped.

Re: FL:Stand your ground law under fire for parking space dispute murder

It's fake news to attack the Florida stand your ground law based on this. The victim was attacked and knocked to the ground. He wasn't standing when he shot his attacker, and it's not likely a person knocked to the ground can crawl fast enough to escape a standing attacker.
